Why Does MSN Open on Startup in Windows 10?
There are several possible reasons why MSN.com opens on startup in Windows 10. Some of them are:
You have MSN Messenger installed and set to run automatically when you log on to Windows. MSN Messenger is an old instant messaging service that was discontinued in 2014, but some people still use it or have it on their computers.
You have a shortcut to MSN.com or Firefox (your default browser) in your Startup folder. The Startup folder is a special location where you can place shortcuts to programs or websites that you want to run automatically when you start your computer.
You have a registry setting that enables active probing for internet connectivity. Active probing is a feature that checks if your computer has a valid internet connection by sending a request to a predefined website (such as MSN.com) and waiting for a response. This feature is useful for some network scenarios, but it can also cause unwanted browser launches.
